OKTO Inspo: Rose

A Blog by Justin Ponti

Creating a rose out of air clay is an essential skill when first using OKTO! Follow these easy steps to make your own rose.

What You’ll Need:

  • One packet of any colour of OKTO Clay

Steps to Create Your OKTO Clay Rose:

1. Start by selecting one packet of any colour of OKTO Clay. This will ensure you have enough material to create all the petals and give your rose a vibrant, consistent colour.

2. Roll your clay into a sausage shape, making sure one end is thicker than the other. This will help in creating different petal sizes.
3. Cut the clay into nine sections: three big, three medium, and three small. For more intricate roses, you can add a fourth size of sections.

4. Roll each section into a ball. You should now have nine balls of varying sizes.
5. Use an object with a flat base, such as a cup or bottle top, to press each ball into a flat circle (you could also press down and spread with your fingers for a more individual style).
6. Take one of the small circles and fold it to create a cone shape. This will serve as the base of your rose.
7. Layer the remaining circles around the base cone. Alternate sides with each new layer. Begin with the smaller circles, then move to the medium, and finish with the larger ones.
8. Work through all nine circles, carefully layering them around the base cone.
9. Finally, use your fingers to sculpt and refine the edges of the petals, giving your rose a realistic and delicate finish.
And there it is, a rose. Made using OKTO Clay, this rose is the start of an awesome modelling journey. If you want to dive deeper into the step-by-step tutorial, please watch this video. Stay tuned to find out how to develop your modelling skills.
